Chocolate Chip Part Deux

I've been missing my roommate, suffering the effects of the full moon and dealing with the reality the more I actively move towards singledom the more I get to talk with cute men on the bus - so how to keep my fingers away from Craigslist's miss connections or whathaveyou? Bake of course.

1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
2-3tsp vanilla
2T molasses
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cup flour
1tsp baking soda
chocolate chips and nuts

Cream together the margarine and shortening and sugar until lighter in color and "fluffy" looking - to do this beat the stuff at max, stopping every once and while to scrap down the sides. Then add the applesauce, molasses and vanilla - beat well. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and soda together. Add to the butter/sugar mix at low speed - pulse until combined - mix in the goodies by hand.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes - bake less for softer cookies.
